In honor of PTA's Teacher Appreciation Week, Richfield community members have written in to Richfield Patch with words of praise for local teachers.
A woman, going just by Teresa, wrote:
"Thanks to Mrs. Anderson, 5th grade teacher at RSTEM (), for all you do for your students. Great teacher!"
Beth di Grazia, a parent of two children at , said:
"My daughter Crystel has Senor Nathaniel Kuster at RDLS. I really appreciate how he has gotten to know her and has taken individual interest in her. Crystel is an awesome child with quite the wit when you get to know her. But it isn't until you really have gained her trust and liking that she allows the fullness of this part of her out. Senor Kuster has found that place where she lives and is now a recepient of who Crystel genuinely is. I find that a remarkable gift for Crystel to have had a teacher that she has grown so fond of to give her very best. Thank you, Senor Kuster.
"Antonio, has Senora Jacques at RDLS. He appreciates her. He respects her. And, I love that about Senora Jacques. She knows Antonio. For a teacher to know a child to me is a sign of a very fine teacher.
"Both of my children have been very blessed with just the right teachers for both of them. How did that happen? It must be that RDLS has great maestros!"
